The only thing id do different is wait to put the finishing sauce on till its reheated, if you use a finishing sauce

Make sure you pull as much excess fat as possible before you refrigerate. Otherwise, you end up with white clumps on Sunday.

Do it a couple of days before, less pressure always tastes better the next day anyway so why not. don't forget the finishing sauce. and if something goes wrong but it pretty much can't with butts you have another day to correct.

Good luck, but you wont need itbiggrin.gif

throw 'em in the crock pot and you'll be fine. Always works out great for me!

I could be wrong here, but i'm thinking you should pull them an hour or so after you finish cooking them...they'll probably "pull" better if they're hot.

Work with me here. You may need more than 1 crock pot!
